Popper Breakfast Sandwich

Jalapeno Popper Sandwich

Popper Breakfast Sandwich is an easy, yet robust and a bit unusual, sandwich that I just tried at Brickhouse Coffee in Willets, CA.

This is a very simple breakfast sandwich that’s sure to be a hit. It’s a jalapeno popper on a bun … but with the addition of an egg, bacon, and Pepper Jack cheese. Can’t go wrong with that, right?

This is actually my photo of the one I ordered (& ate) at Brickhouse Coffee in Willets, CA. We’ve always stopped in Willets on our way to Laytonville where our camping trip is. This year, we kept expecting Willets would be the next exit, nope – next exit …. and then we were in Laytonville? Where’d Willets go? Towns don’t disappear like that. It’s like being in the Twilight Zone. It turns out, in the 3 years since I’ve been here, a bypass was built, and you can’t even see Willets from the freeway. Anyway, the Popper Breakfast Sandwich is an easy crowd pleaser.

I had it on a brioche bun, but your choice of bread will do. This one had 1 egg, but if you want it eggier, use 2. Otherwise, proportions are a matter of taste.
